LibriVox recording of The Grand Babylon Hotel, by Arnold Bennett. Read by Anna Simon.

Theodore Racksole, a rich American multi-millionaire, buys the Grand Babylon Hotel, a luxurious hotel in London, as a whim - and then finds out there are strange things going on - a German prince is supposed to arrive but never turns up, someone is found murdered in the hotel, but then the body disappears. With the help of his independent daughter Nella and another German prince, Racksole sets out to solve the mystery.
Bennett wrote this as a 15-part serial, for a lark, in 15 days, and sold it for 100 pounds. It first appeared in The Golden Penny in 1902, which described it as "the most original, amusing, and thrilling serial written in a decade". (Summary by Anna Simon)

Subject: Nicely read by Anna Simon
But I really tire of the fact that the majority of these mystery novels have to do with the powerful and wealthy(i.e. the exploiters and misery makers of the masses of the world. it is truly a bitter earth for the majority of people.)

I hope for the day that the US empire falls and joins the world's family of nations as an equal peaceful, contributor member.
